We took little man to the fair yesterday and we had a blast. I've always loved the fair and have great childhood memories of my whole family piling in the car and heading to the fair. We'd see just about every exhibit there (my mom is a teacher, and teaching never ends) and ride as many rides as my dad would pay for and we'd graze along the way on everything fried we could find.
Going with kids brings back those memories. I got to ride the rides with my son and sneak some of his cotton candy. We played games with the goal of winning a $3.00 toy which ultimately became a $12.00 toy, but I'd do anything to see that smile. When we first walked in, I said we needed to get some lunch and he immediatly said he wanted corn - he'd seen someone walking around with it - you can see the kid knows what he likes!
This morning he wanted to go back to the fair and I told him it was all gone and was moving to the next town. He said, "How do they move that big alligator?"
I said, "They hitch his trailer up to a truck and ride him down the road."
He said, "An alligator riding down the road - that's silly mommie."
